The O.C. Register has some new information about what went on backstage at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, CA on Saturday just before Anthony Kiedis was rushed to the hospital.

“Backstage, leading up to the announcement, there was a sense of chaos as the Chili Peppers and musicians from other acts conferred with production staff. No one would say anything further about Kiedis or what had happened.

Flea and drummer Chad Smith had watched Blink-182 – the surprise guest this year – from the side of the stage, with Smith particularly animated as he studied drummer Travis Barker and sang along.
